The toss might not be a big factor at the Rajiv Gandhi International stadium in Hyderabad. Teams might prefer chasing, though, with dew expected to arrive early due to humidity.
In their last meeting, Sunrisers Hyderabad recorded a 23-run win against Kolkata with Harry Brook scoring a hundred. However, for this fixture their win probability is slightly less than 50%.

Players to keep an eye on…
SRH Predicted playing XI:
Abhishek Sharma, Mayank Agarwal, Rahul Tripathi, Aiden Markram, Harry Brook, Heinrich Klaasen, Akeal Hosein, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mayank Markande, Umran Malik, T Natarajan
KKR Predicted playing XI:
Narayan Jagadeesan, Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Venkatesh Iyer, Nitish Rana, Andre Russell, Rinku Singh, Sunil Narine, David Wiese, Anukul Roy, Suyash Sharma, Varun Chakaravarthy
Harry Brook: The century against Kolkata earlier this season has been Brook’s only significant contribution but SRH have stuck with him so far. Can he turn his poor form around against KKR again?
Suyash Sharma: The mystery spinner could be a tough proposition for the Sunrisers on this wicket and could turn out to be Kolkata’s best bowler of the day.
